The Awesome Hanging Rock Trip!

11/17/2014

This weekend our troop was going on another exciting camping trip at Hanging Rock State Park. We had 4 new scouts from Webelos 2 pack 16 that also attended. Twenty two scouts attended the campout. On Friday we drove to Hanging Rock, it was cold the moment we stepped out of our cars. We unloaded the trailer we went to our campsites in the dark. Everyone was freezing as we set up our tents. Soon it was morning and it got down to 23 degrees which made a really cold Saturday morning. We started to build a fire it was hard however we soon got it started so everyone could warm up. After lunch we did some activities that included knots, hiking, fire building, and a maze puzzle. This was followed up by an activities challenges that took until nightfall. Everyone gave it their all with team Alpha wining the activities challenge to earn a great dessert later that night. When we were done we ate dinner which was followed by some late night KP and some final huddling by the fire before snuggling into our sleeping bags. Sunday morning it was a little warmer 34 degrees which allowed us to quickly pack up so we could hike back up to Window Falls. When we finished Sunday service on top of the mountain and we hiked back to our cars to finally make our way home. Soon we arrived home and even though it was cold we will remember the trip to hanging rock as an awesome experience for all scouts.
